Caja Rural Ipeti Guna Group's story

The rural bank in Ipeti Guna has been operating in the community for four years. In this time, they have been able to provide members of the community with the opportunity to save and also to request loans. These people did not used to have access to these kinds of services.

The group wants to build their own office, since the place where they currently meet is very small and uncomfortable for members during their weekly meetings. The purpose of the weekly meetings is to facilitate financial transactions.

They are a very united group and they are all very committed to the growth of financial services in the community.

Mrs. Elida (treasurer of the rural bank), Mr. Alvariño (president), Maybelyn (secretary), and Feliana (district attorney) have succeeded in growing financial services in their rural area.
